There was once a dream that was IVCC. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish... it was so fragile. And we feared that it will not survive the 2013 winter. But survive it did, and so the gentlemen players got together in a backstreet boozer in OX4 and established Iffley Village Cricket Club in 2014. With the ethos behind the club being to play friendly 40-over and 20-over cricket matches against like-minded clubs around the country, our focus is as much on playing competitive cricket as it is enjoying a beer with the opposition after the game, and with the journey being far more important than the result.
Thanks and congrats to all involved for being part of such a successful season both on and off the pitch. A playing record of P13, W6, L6 and 1NR (which was basically a win!) is very solid stuff. Stat Attack: This season saw the "Highest Individual Score by Position" improved from previous seasons in all but one position.
If anyone has any photos from this season they would like posted in the Photos section, please let Garr have them.
Finally, End of Season Dinner on 22 October - email Ferg to confirm attendance.
Much like buses, having only had one prior IVCC century, we had two in the recent game against the St Clements Strollers. Congrats to Mark Denning and Olly Ross for top knocks.Posted 23rd Aug 2016 by Bill Smith
Big congratulations to Tim Morton, who became IVCC's first ever century-maker in the game against Wantage & Grove on 5th June. Tim smashed 143 runs in his record-breaking innings, a knock which included twelves maximums and four lost balls. Well played that man!
